Sticky Thread Sticky: New to Keto? - Look Here First *Frequently Asked Questions*

One of the most frequently asked questions is regarding ketostix. Many people ask if they are still in ketosis if the stick is only showing trace amounts of ketones. My response to this question would be that you are either in ketosis or you are not. If you are only showing trace amounts that could...

Sticky Thread Sticky: A Guide to Ketosis

I first heard about keto from this board 3 or 4 years ago, so this is where it all started for me. I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

Lightbulb Random question to keto/vlc dieters

This is probably the best place to ask this. It is more of a VLC topic. Assuming that taste variety isn't an issue for you, what are the reasons not to eat eggs as a majority of your food intake? The preparation is easy, maybe 5-10 minutes and they provide an excellent macro profile. Not...

Smile not quite Keto... but questions about health & digestion on High Fat?

I'm not actually on a Keto diet, i'm on an elimination diet for digestive issues which restricts me from a lot of fruits and vegetables. My breakdown has come out to around 45% fat, 25% protein, and 30% carb . This is without trying to shoot for certain macros, it's just the way it's been...

"Keto flu", or actual influenza?

Today is Day 11 of my ketogenic diet. I've read about "keto flu" and how it's pretty common when one's body is adjusting to the new diet. However, I thought it was only applicable for the first few days, so I was surprised when I suddenly got sick today. It actually happened a few hours after I...

Is it necessary to do SKD for several weeks before TKD?

I was on SKD for 6 months, stopped Keto for the past 4 and am looking to get back on it again, but TKD this time around to maintain performance. It's recommended to do SKD for several weeks to get adapted before going onto TKD, but I am wondering whether or not that is truly necessary? If I start...

Is Green Tea Ok While on Keto

I believe I once read that tea should be avoided while on Keto diet. Is it true? I drink quite a bit of green tea everyday, so kind of curious if its true. Thanks.

How much fiber should you eat on keto?

If following the 65/35/5 guidelines, how much fiber can you eat? Does it not matter as long as the net carbs are what they should be. Say your total carbs are 50, but your fiber is 45. Which bring you to 5. But What if your total carbs are 60, and your net fiber is 55? No difference,...

How much protein will kick you out of ketosis?

Ketogenic diets call for 20% of calories for protein. I am 255 lbs and looking to start keto soon. Does that equate to about 120 grams of protein? Also, considering that I will be lifting weights for the majority of the week, isn't 20% protein too little? Thanks!

Pre-workout concerns

I've been using 1 scoop b-nox androrush for pre, just noticed it has 12 g carbs. I'm assuming those are coming from the glucose polymers they have listed in their prop blend. I still stay under 50 g for the day when using it, but how much could this be affecting my keto fat burning goals,...
